Congrats to the guys at 37Signals as they announce Jeff Bezos has made a personal investment in the company.
Here’s the scoop from the 37Signals blog…
Since we launched Basecamp weâ€™ve been contacted by nearly 30 different VC firms. Weâ€™ve never been interested in the typical traditional VC deal…We donâ€™t need their money to run the business and our little black book is full. Weâ€™re looking for something else.
What weâ€™ve been looking for is the wisdom of a very special entrepreneur whoâ€™s been through what weâ€™re going through. Someone who sees things a little differently and makes us feel right at home. Someone with a long term outlook, not a build-to-flip mentality. We found a perfect match in Jeff. Jeff is our kinda guy.
